    Default Guerlain Homme Intense and Armani Code Sport

    I've been wearing Guerlain Homme EDP quite a lot lately. I find that mojito accord and the bitter chocolate to be a nice, pleasant, gentle mix with a slightly animalic feel to it. Rather fond of it - and due to my recent skin reactions (and sometimes even nausea) with Guerlain Vetifer :-( (extreme sadface!) it may well be becoming my signature fragrance.

    While about town it struck me how there some similarities between Homme and Code Sport which really speak to me. The strong presence of mint and citrus for one thing. Although the rum in homme adds to it a more sensual quality in my opinion. Also Homme intense has far better longevity, Code Sport lasts about 20 minutes on me.

    Has anyone else found similarities between the two?

    May be obvious to you guys, but as a n00b nose I was rather excited to notice this.

    Sorry, but personally don't find them similar although I do like both.

    Code Sport has a powderyness that I just dont get with GHI. Because of that I'd say they are not all that similar.

    I don't find them to be similar. Armani Code Sport reminds me quite a bit of YSL Live Jazz, though.

    While I do see the similarities you mention between these two fragrances, I still feel they have very distinct and different "vibes".

    I don't find them particularly similar. IMHO both have quite decent longevity.

    That's great that you're noticing small similarities between otherwise dissimilar fragrances. You've got a good n00b nose there!

    I only noticed the mint, if I'm remembering Code Sport correctly (I don't own it, or a sample). I think that GHI's mint is among the better usages in the current mint fad.

    Another note that I find easy to detect between frags is guaiac wood, which provides an interesting alternative to cedar and synthetic sandalwood. It's in Code - not sure about Sport. You will find it easy to spot in some other frags.

    I have to admit that when I saw your thread title, I was going WTF! But I'm excited that you saw this similarity which I had simply glossed over.

    For an overall similarity to GHI, L'Instant Pour Homme Extreme is very notable. Hope you try that one, too, if you like GHI.

    Your taste is similar to mine, neo_angel - I would bet money you will like Guerlain Homme Intense. I think it's a safe blind buy if you can imagine Guerlain Homme being rich like L'Instant or the modern gourmands. Indie Guy is also a fan, and I think you have similar tastes to him sometimes. Normally I don't encourage reckless buying, but I'm being a bad influence - GO FOR IT!
